10 Things You Should Be Doing Around Beach Street!

Beach Street has been around long enough that it seems to slip off everyone’s mind about the fun and exciting activities that you can actually do. With that being said, we’re back with our personal curation of 10 Things You Should Be Doing Around Beach Street! Let’s get onto it, shall we?

1. Have An All-Day Breakfast @ Urban Daybreak 

We know that breakfast makes our day but sometimes when we simply just wanna sleep in, an all-day breakfast is ALWAYS a good idea. When we think of a hearty all-day breakfast, we think of Urban Daybreak. Their Signature French Toast that comes alongside brulee banana and homemade salted peanut butter jam is enough to make our day. Oh, if you’re looking to go big, how about giving Urban’s Really Big Breakfast a go? Forget an apple a day keeps the doctor away, it’s a cup of coffee a day, keeps the doctor away. Just look at how Instagrammable their breakfasts are!

Wrapped in banana leaves to further enhance its fragrant and aromatic rice, the spicy kick in this Nasi Lemak will definitely leave you wanting more.
